  • Jerrod Carmichael

    Jerrod Carmichael

    Jerrod Carmichael is an LA based standup and performer originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He has been crafting his standup for over three years and this year was featured in Variety as being one of the top ten comics to watch, as well as being one of the New Faces at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
     
    Jerrod is a regular around some of LA’s favorite standup shows, including Meltdown, The Improv, Laugh Factory and many alternative rooms.

    Comedian Jerrod Carmichael is getting his very first standup special, and it's going to be a big one: an hour-long special for HBO. The untitled special will be taped May 7th, 2014 at The Comedy Store, and it will air later this year. Carmichael's HBO hour is being produced by Funny Or Die and directed by Spike Lee. This will be only the second standup special Spike Lee has directed, following the 2000 standup concert film The Original Kings of Comedy.

    In an interview with us back in 2012, Carmichael discussed plans to do a special:

    "I have an idea [for a special]. I think it's a good idea. It's very specific to me … If you do a special, you want to do it not just to do a special. You want to do it because you have something to say, and you think it can be impactful. So, what I want to say is coming out more, and I'm excited about that."

    It's very rare for HBO to give an hour special to a comedian as new as Carmichael, who, although he's been doing standup since 2008, has never done a set on TV. Most comedians start with late night spots or a half-hour Comedy Central special, so Carmichael getting an hour on HBO, which is a prestigious and sought-after gig in the industry, as his first televised performance says a lot about how much faith HBO has in him.

    Carmichael, who ranked first in a 2013 poll we conducted amongst LA bookers and hosts to determine their favorite up and coming standups, has appeared on Fox's The Goodwin Games, the upcoming movie Neighbors, and created and starred in a sitcom pilot that's currently in development at NBC.
     

  • George Perez

    George Perez

    George Perez is one of the best up and coming comedians of his time. His wit and charm capture an audience and from there on the laughs are unstoppable. His street smarts and charismatic personality poke fun at the harsh, yet hilarious realities of growing up as a Latino in today's society. He uses his own life experiences as his anecdote to every joke. His poise and familiarity with growing up in the streets, becoming a young father, and tearing down every stereotype has aided George in becoming a better comic. It also allows the audience to relate to him on a higher level; making his comedy that much more real and amusing.
    In the past seven years George has had the opportunity to enlighten audiences with his comedy in clubs all across Southern California and the Mid West. He has appeared on numerous television shows, such as Comedy Central, SHOWTIME, PAYASO COMEDY SLAM,LATV Live, Loco Comedy Jam, Mind of Mencia, Master P’s Black Superman and starred in three episodes of MTV's Yo Momma, where he got to use his sly wit and quick thinking to win his episode. After working with Wilmer Valderama, he was asked to return for the Best of LA episode as a final competitor
